    I have spent entire day trying to get my palm set up and the stylus still will not do anything on the screen in spite of the fact that I have done the target thing hundreds of time. I did it when it first came up and after the palm was hotsynced. Now all that comes up on the screen is the target thing. I don't even get the main menu page anymore. When I look at the hotsync log, everything looks OK, but now it won't even hotsync anymore. It is virtually useless.

    I have exactly the same problem.
    Can't even do a hard reset.
    Do I have to buy new one?

    wont work when touching the screen

  • Anonymous Apr 27, 2009

    This morning my Zire 21 quit responding to touch screen inputs. Did soft reset 3 times no resolution.

    Same problem here. Mine started reading my inputs wrong, so I re-digitized it by tapping on the targets and it seemed ok. I had to do this several times. Then I went to turn it on and my keylock was on. I could not get past that point. Then I did several soft resets to no avail. I have considered letting it die, as that has worked for other problems in the past. Ug. Any help?

I encountered this problem today, and I have figured out a solution!

Switch the Wireless switch on the bottom of the Pocket PC to the Off position, then back on.

Voila, your touch screen should respond now.

Stylus not responding

Have you tried a reset of the phone by pushing the stylus into the small hole in the bottom of the device?

Try this, and see if it picks up the stylus touches again.

Touch screen

You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.

Calibration of my MobilePro off

We've put together some useful tips on calibrating your MobilePro * When calibrating your touch screen be sure to use the same amount of pressure that you apply during normal use. In general, the lighter the better. This allows the screen to recognize taps consistently. * When calibrating your touch screen hold the stylus over the calibration point until it moves to the next point. Holding it for this period will lead to greater accuracy than just tapping the spot quickly. * When calibrating your touch screen support the screen from the back with your other hand. Try not to grasp the screen from the side with your thumb on the front. * When calibrating your touch screen do not let anything other that the stylus accidentally touch the screen. For example, don't rest part of your hand on the screen to help steady the stylus. * Once you've completed the stylus calibration, be sure to perform the double tap calibration as well. This will ensure greater accuracy.
